Thread: The Jerk vs Big nasty

    The Jerk vs Big nasty

    I have been going through the archives here and see that people have been throwing the bulldawg magnums and pounders with the big nasty. My problem is that when I put my slingblade in the jeep I have to drive with the window open so it will fit diagonal and that is 8'6. Being that the big nasty is 9ft it will stick out even further. I could go with the big dawg if necessary, however I was wondering if anyone has tried the jerk or classic jerk. The weight ratings seem the same as far as lure weight and line handling.

    Thanks,

    mike

    Yes you can use the 7'6" Jerk for fishing mag dawgs and pounders. I used to use it before the 8'6" rods were developed. I still use the Jerk for fishing jerkbaits like Phantoms and side-to-side topwater. In this case the shorter rod allows me to use my wrist to make subtle lure movements I can't perform as well with the 8'6". In fact, the Jerk is the only rod in my boat under 8'6".
